* ScrewedByTheLawyers[=/=]ScrewedByTheNetwork: These are the reasons why the film's American release was stuck on...
** TheShelfOfMovieLanguishment: Creator/TheWeinsteinCompany spent three million dollars to pick up the finished film for distribution and give it a wide release in 2007. Then ''Film/{{Grindhouse}}'' flopped -- despite large amounts of publicity and a warm reception from critics -- alongside several other big-studio horror films released around the same time. The Weinsteins concluded that horror films were now an unsound investment, so they sold the film to Senator Entertainment US, which later went out of business and left this film in limbo for years. The film eventually showed up in Britain in 2008 (where it made back its budget at least twice over) and finally received an official American release in October 2013.
